Eating tofu is one way to lose weight. Tofu helps you lose excess body fat if you consume it as part of a reduced-calorie diet. Tofu is an excellent source of amino acids, iron, calcium, and other micro-nutrients, and is a versatile ingredient with many health benefits. The reason tofu is great for diet is that it contains soy beans.

 Soy proteins are believed to help lower levels of bad cholesterol and helps burn fat.

 Soy saponins help guard against the increase of neutral fats in your body.

 Soy isoflavones are known to have an anti-ageing effect on your body.

Tofu is not just for dieting, since tofu helps reducing the levels of low-density lipoprotein or bad cholesterol in your body, tofu has been known to lower the risk of heart disease. Also, tofu helps in cancer prevention. Men can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by eating tofu.

Regular exercise is, of course important, but now you know how tofu helps your diet. All it takes is substituting tofu for carbohydrate foods such as rice or bread. Let’s get healthy and lose some weights for summer with Tofu!
